Chemical Fertilizer

Ammonium Chloride

Ammonium chloride is one of main nitrogen fertilizers in Japan along with ammonium sulfate and urea. The main features are as follows.

  1. 1. Produces few hydrogen sulfide which causes rot, and helps roots grow healthy.
  2. 2. Accelerates photosynthesis and improves grain filling
  3. 3. Reduces crop lodging and stabilizes growth
  4. 4. Improves the taste of rice
  5. 5. As ammonium nitrogen can be retained well in the soil, the improvement of fertilizer effect and reduction of environment burden are expected also.
Ammonium nitrogen 25%

Research has demonstrated that ammonium chloride and fertilizers containing ammonium chloride are typically effective in terms of stability, high crop yields, lodging reduction, root rot mitigation, promotion of photosynthesis, and in improving both taste and quality.
